As a musician and an activist, I’ve used social media to varying degrees of success. But we have entered an era in which we are facing a lot of simple obstacles to reaching audiences on our social media platforms, as well as outright censorship and banning. So I’m happy for the chance to speak with two innovators in the blockchain social media landscape. 

Bill Ottman is co-founder and CEO of, a crypto social network.

Matt Asher is founder of Before the Ban, a decentralized service for online identity preservation.

Through their projects, they are pushing back on the limits and failures of social media giants like Facebook and Twitter, and concretizing values of user control, decentralization, free speech, and privacy.

Matt recently released the white paper for Before The Ban, so I hope people will check it out. And I’m already making my 2nd post on for this episode!

Are you frustrated by your user experience on social media? Have you thought about using alternative platforms? Why or why not? Have you ever been banned? Do you have trouble gaining the reach and attention for your posts that you want? Comment below!

The Tatiana Show: Feat. Dash Force News and Crypto Rockstars


Hey y’all!  I really enjoyed talking with everyone today, and I know Josh did too 🙂  I have been interested in the use of cryptocurrency in South America, but we got a peek into Dash in Venezuela, arguably one of the most fertile grounds for this new technology.  In the midst of the horror, Dash and other cryptos are finding their way on the ground to help people get around the inflation.  When I say inflation, I mean it’s estimated to hit 1,000,000% this year!

We also had on Thorsten from Crypto-Rockstars.  Check out the online conference Nov 26-28!
